Review Process for Approval of Programs in the Distance Education Format

Colleges and Universities located in or operating in New York State that offer degree or certificate programs in which a major portion (i.e., 50% or more) of the requirements can be completed through study delivered by distance education must have those programs registered in the distance education format with the Office of College and University Evaluation (OCUE) of the State Education Department. 

To add the distance education format to a new program proposal or to an existing registered program, submit the distance education supplement appropriate to the type of program proposal. Please see our program registration home page for more information about the types of program proposals.
